Jessica Dutton says: 1984 by George Orwell. My book was printed by Penguin in 1952 and I absolutely love it. I'm drawn in by the male protagonist, despite his dystopian surroundings, he is relatable.

I am reading 'Strands' by poet Jean Sprackland. It's subtitled ' year of discoveries on the beach' and records her thoughts and observations of a regular walk taken through the seasons. I only came across her recently and the book is a delight. As I live by the sea it has made me be more observant on my rambles too!

Song lines Bruce Chatwyn. A book recommended to me by a colleague on an Arvon writing course which I borrowed from the library

Clk: Songlines is a classic, beautiful

Printed Material: Strands I've not read but it sounds rather good. I'm quite envious of people who live near the sea, I could happily go beach walking every day too.

I'm reading Jo Nesbo's 'Nemesis'. Got it out of our spanking new library in Wakefield (opened by Jarvis Cocker, no less, who chatted to people and signed autographs after the official curtain drawing!). I'm racing through the Harry Hole series; unfortunately not reading them in sequence! The perils of borrowing popular books from libraries! I've got one more book from the back catalogue to read, then I can leap forward to Nesbo's latest; 'Police'. Fab!

Hi. Three weeks post surgery and I honestly can't tell you the titles of the books I've read while recovering. BUT this week I picked up Daily Rituals: How Artists Work by Mason Curry. Did you know that novelist Henry Miller wrote from midnight to dawn until he realized that he was a morning person?

'Bring up the bodies', by Hilary Mantel. I read it during the summer but realized that it was the follow up from 'Wolf Hall', which I read afterwards; so I am re-reading 'Bring up the Bodies' as I understand more where the characters have come from. It deals in a novel with the life of Thomas Cromwell during the reign of Henry the VIII, and the inner political stories behind his first three wives.
